Universal Studios Orlando says a photo of a guests using the Nazi and “OK” signs on the Revenge of the Mummy ride is “appalling.”
The ride’s camera snapped the image of four people, two men and two women, sitting on the roller coaster on Sunday, giving the Nazi salute with one hand and the “OK” symbol with the other. (According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, white supremacy groups use the classically-neutral gesture to “trigger liberals.”)
The people on the roller coaster are not identified in public, and the photo was reportedly posted to the Universal Orlando Annual Passholders Facebook page. It was deleted but swept through social media, including Reddit, where “out of control” comments triggered a shut-down of the post.
Yahoo Lifestyle contacted two friends of a woman in the photo but did not immediately hear back.
A spokesperson from Universal Studios Orlando tells Yahoo Lifestyle, ”Hate has no place here — and we have no tolerance for any display of hatred within our destination. We stand for diversity, inclusion and respect. This photo is appalling and we pulled it from our Facebook page as soon as we became aware of it. Any guest using hate speech or displaying hate symbols will be immediately removed from our destination and not allowed to return.”
